My appointment today

I was a little bit disappointed today because I had hopes I might be progressing. I had my strep swab done and asked for a cervix check. Chris, Amanda and I started a bet how far I could be dialated and how efaced (soft) it might be. We were all wrong. My cervix is not open for business. Nada, nothin. She said that was normal for 35 weeks, but still! I want progress dangit! Looks like I am on track for a June 23rd-ish delivery afterall. So those of you that think otherwise...you're wrong!
She also pressed on my lower abdomen and felt Amelia's head. Yep sir-ee, it's official, she's upside down and ready to roll. Her heartbeat is 153. Good as gold.

WOO HOO that's good news for me! I get to see my niece arrive. :-D I figured as much though. No matter how big you are, it doesn't mean you're going to deliver early. And you're not that big. I was bigger than you. I'll have to send you pics. :-D To me, you look radiant.

Michelle is so right you are radiant. I was also very big with both of mine. But I still think 3 weeks. I don't know why I think 3 weeks it is just a feeling.
Love ya Mary xoxoxo
